If Eklund is that good Buffalo should have taken him instead of Power.
Buffalo needs a center more than a LHD.
This is a perfect example of how stupid the Sabres are, they drafted a LHD and are now using a RW's at Center Thompson and Quinn.
Alternatively they could have traded down for the fifth OA, .

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Skyraider112</b></div><div>Easy decline from Buffalo.

You'd be wary of making a deal that sees you trade the #34 pick for the #14 pick <em>straight up</em>?

I think the Sabres are trying to get a chance the golden ring this year, so this is a no, we do not want to make that team better this year.
Let me add, I have not watched Yamamoto, but I have watched Peterka in the prospect challenge and the preseason games this year.
He is fast, he has a hard and accurate shot, over two years of drafts, he was beyond a doubt the best player taken by Adams (Power may be better but I have not watched him play).
Buffalo was given a gift in the second round last year, IDK how he lasted that long, they made a great decision to move up.
<strong>The bottom line, I like the future of Peterka more than I like the current Yamamoto.</strong>

Let me begin, I watched three Sabre preseason games, the Jackets were the best team Buffalo played.
Second, that is a HUGE offer for Jack.
Voronkov, probably a bottom 6 forward removing him would not change the trade IMO.
Domi, ($2,500,000 retained) who knows what he will be, IMO he is added to balance the cap.
Foudy, probably a mid 6 forward, he could also be removed and not affect the trade.
Texier, best part of the trace top 6 center would challenge Mittelstadt and Cozens for ice time.
Korpisalo, ($1,400,000 retained) IDK how to value him, some one tell me, Buffalo could use him, maybe they do not as they want to be bad this year.
Nyquist, ($2,750,000 retained) a solid veteran center at half price. IMO he should not be included as the Jackets could use him to make the playoffs.
2022 1st round pick (CHI)
2022 2nd round pick (CBJ)
2023 1st round pick (CBJ) Make this condition on Jacks performance.

Alternatively:
Trim this down to 2 firsts, second, Domi (or Nyquist), and Texier, no retention and no conditions.
Buffalo takes the risk that Domi will rebound and resign.
Jackets takes the risk that Jack will play this year.
What if Buffalo were to add Miller what would the Jackets add to my suggestion?

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mauston_atthews</b></div><div>One of chinakov or boqvist has to be included along with more <strong>I think this is a good offer and Buffalo may accept.</strong></div></div> <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MauriceRichard1028</b></div><div>People on this site don't know what constructive feedback is ...<strong>OMW, I agree.

<strong>Maybe other Sabre fans would disagree, but I would do back flips if this was the offer.
Nyquist could be flipped for additional picks to a team looking for 2B RW.
If Domi rebounded and resigned, Buffalo could move Cozens to wing.</strong>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>hanson493</b></div><div>Eichel also has a broken neck and may never be the same player with either surgery 10m is alot to take on not knowing wtf you are getting for a player in return, you could be getting the superstar at 25 years old still, you could be getting a guy whos ltiretired for the rest of his career and cant play hockey again. im assuming these picks are straight up but ide imagine any sort of eichel deal for any team has conditional 1sts that become way lesser picks if he doesnt hit GP or Point thresholds after surgery. I really dont see many teams offering more than 2 firsts 2 seconds and a roster player. regardless of retention or whatnot. Im sure they can make the cap work for a deal using any plethora of guys. <strong>Let' s be clear Jack does not have a broken neck.</strong>
<strong>Second, my objection to the trade is retaining $2,500,000.</strong>
<strong>I gave several examples of the cost of retention, did you happen to over look those?</strong>
<strong>Then I gave a reasonable offer without the retention. It would be nice if you responded to that.</strong>
idc if buffalo goes 0-82 grz is still a valuable piece in any deal. hes a better dman all around than colin miller and buffalo gave up a 2nd and a 5th for him iirc. For those that are down on vaak and freddy. Freddy is a high intensity grit 4th liner atm might become a 3rd if he develops but probably only a 4th liner, that being said hes still an nhl player at 23 yo, not like this is what he is for the rest of his career. Vaak looked great until his concussion a few years ago, some guys take longer to recover, hes taking a bit longer to get his groove back. Hes only 22 and still believe he has high enough upside there. <strong>First I completely agree that Grzelcyk is the center piece. I wonder if you actually saw that, for you to start your comment about him.
Second, 4th line players are added to the line for free by signing UFA's, Frederic is not a valuable addition to the trade.
So Vaakanainen is damaged goods? So let's not add any conditions and Buffalo will take the chance that he is good and Boston takes the risk that Jack will be the same.
Jack returning to full capabilities is more likely than Vaakanainen being a top 6 player.</strong></div></div>
I guess you did not notice that I objected to the retention and what that much retention will cost.
Nor did you notice the I agreed that Grzelcyk is a valuable asset.
I wonder why you chose to ignore my alternative trade, I am responding to your comment, you are obviously not responding to mine.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Skyraider112</b></div><div>Sure but what's the point in acquiring a promising young player if there is no place for him to play in the lineup? Sure he could play 3rd pair LHD this year but for next year I envision Dahlin, Power, and Samuelsson down the left which will be the best left side in the NHL by a mile in a couple years. Heck Johnson who is a high B prospect has no place on the team in the future unless someone switches sides. Sabres could desperately use another RHD prospect though because asides Joki (who is a 2nd pair guy at best) and Laaksonen (who again is a 2nd pair guy at best) we lack any organization depth there. Would love to see us acquire or draft a extremely solid stay at home D-man for Dahlin</div></div> I said you are 100% correct, Buffalo needs RHD.
Your assessment of Jokiharju and Laaksonen is perfect.
I noticed today a LHD prospect (Juolevi) was traded for a RHD (Juulsen) prospect, any one of Bryson, Samuelsson, Butcher, Hagg, or Beaudin could be traded for a RHD IMO.
Obviously not a top pairing RHD, but if the Sabres had 3 RHD as good as Jokiharju, I would be satisfied with any two of them paired with Dahlin or Power.
Beaudin is only one of the pieces, Strome, Nylander and a second.
Those last three pieces are nearly enough for Olofsson.
When I see the Sabres are going to have Thompson at Center, it is obvious we need both a center and RW.
Let me add, Olofsson did not have a great preseason, if we could get that many pieces for him, it would be a killing.
On a side note, it would be great if the Krakens put Borgen and the Hawks put Nylander on waivers. With the worse record, Buffalo could get them both back for nothing.
